World-class public schools


We must work together at all levels of government to ensure that every American child receives a world-class public education—no matter their race or zip code.

I’ve spent the majority of my adult life working to create more opportunity for young people, and I will continue to make that a top priority as a member of Congress.

Dean’s record

Dean’s top priority in Congress is ensuring our schools have the federal resources they need to support their students, teachers, and other support professionals.

That’s why Dean is a cosponsor of the IDEA Full Funding Act, which would fully fund the federal government’s portion of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act over a 10-year period.

He also believes the federal government should support and build upon intensive mentoring programs during new teachers’ first years, which will help them succeed and create more opportunity for young people, and ensure access to mental and emotional health services in every school.

Let’s create change—together.
